Subtropical Storm Ernesto formed Wednesday with winds of 40 miles an hour, according to the National Weather Service.

The latest storm, Ernesto, fits the bill in terms of weaker intensity in most storms seen so far this season.

So why is it considered subtropical and why are these types of storms given names?


Ernesto is the fifth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. A faster northeastward motion is forecast to occur on Thursday and Friday. The National Hurricane Center started issuing advisories on this Subtropical system Wednesday morning. Whereas a tropical storm may have its strongest winds at its center, a sub tropical storm can have its strongest winds further out. Of those storms, 4-7 are forecast to become hurricanes and 0-2 of those hurricanes could become major storms.

You may recall that in 2017, what was then Post-Tropical Cyclone Ophelia was moving through the northeast Atlantic - toward Ireland.

AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said no other tropical development is expected in the Atlantic basin through at least early next week.
